If goods are transported through land, dangerous goods would be substances that have explosive, flammable, toxic, infectious or corrosive properties; and containers that have held dangerous goods. Some commonly available items, such as fireworks, petrol, swimming pool chemicals, LPG, compressed air cylinders and solvent-based paints, are classified as dangerous goods.

Key Takeaways:

  • “Among the updates, there will be new rules governing the transport of dangerous goods in limited quantities to reduce the regulatory burden for business owners and provide continued assurance that these goods are transported safely and efficiently,” Mr Retter said.
